September 1, St. Brigid Starts Today


Does anyone know what today is? September 1st, the much anticipated start date of the Alice Starmore St. Brigid sweater! I guess I’m as ready as much as a-knitter-with-too-many-projects can be. I had hoped to clear my project backlist up, but unfortunately, have only continued to take on more projects. Will this ever end? Or, is this just the fate of a someone who loves to knit?

After purchasing and swatching my St. Brigid yarn in late July, I just could not resist knitting a repeat to see what those cables would look like! It will be difficult to photograph this olive colored Cascade 220 yarn. Any tips?

There is a St. Brigid link to our yahoo group at the top of this blog if you want to take the plunge and knit along with us. And, I need all the moral support I can get as this is my very first sweater!

  1. You are all ready! I missed the first go around and looks like I’m missing the second wave as well 😉

    Yours, looks lovely. I’ll need to watch you, just in case I decide to do it later.

  2. Gorgeous! I’d considered an olive green for mine, too. Still have the yarn… still want to do it up in cables… So happy to see your start! Have fun!!

  3. Cheering you out of the starting gate! It’s a stunning sweater, and you’ll have such a great time knitting your way through the fall in it!

  4. You are going to have so much fun making this sweater! I envy you the process, the project, the finished sweater…everything! I wish I had time to knit this one along with you, darn it! You are going to have SO much fun!

  5. Your St. Brigid is going to be beautiful – such defined cables with the Casdade 220. After seeing your cabley sweater, I am inspired to complete my 2/3 finished “Must Have Cardigan” will dig it out tonight!

  6. hurray! you get to knit your sweater. try photographing under “ottlight” so you can see the cables. i think it should up pretty great in this picture!

  7. Okay, now I’m feeling guilty and jealous all at once. I’m signed up to do the St Brigid KAL, but have done nothing towards that end…yours is absolutely lovely. Nice job! I also love the scarf, and the color….yum!

    BTW–thanks for the moral support w/ the whole kid-going-off-to-college thing. L. is doing much better and seems to be adjusting, as are we. I just didn’t realize it would be this hard!

  8. St Brigid looks stunning already – I love cable work! Can’t wait to see how it progresses!

  9. Wow, gorgeous colour and beautiful cables! Good luck with the sweater Rebecca!
